UPDATE 21/11/13: We've updated the article with the complete list of install sizes available at time of launch. For the full list of digital game prices on the Xbox Games Store, head through here.

ORIGINAL REPORT: Xbox One launch titles will require between 246MB and 43GB of storage space to install, it's been revealed.

The list of installation requirements was revealed over the weekend after a number of Xbox One users received their console early from US retailer Target.

The sizes (compiled by NeoGAF) were alleged to have been listed on the Xbox One Games Store and accessible to those who received their console early prior to being blocked from the service.

All Xbox One titles require installation to the hard drive regardless of whether or not they are purchased on disc, with some titles playable midway through installation.

Moonlightswami, one user who received his Xbox One console early, claims that discs automatically install as soon as they are inserted into the disc drive.

i'd read somewhere sony's only requirements for changing the hard-drive where....

"PS4 is equipped with a 5400 RPM SATA II hard drive. Users can choose to install a new hard drive so long as it complies with these standards, is no thicker than 9.5mm, and is larger than 160GB."

Just looked for a 2TB 5400RPM sataII latop hard drive, the things already been delivered and its tiny! got two huge external desktop drives each with their own power cable for media storage, to think i could back them both up on this tiny drive, techs moving fast these days :S

You'll need a set of Star/torx screwdrivers though i think, i got a cheapo set off ebay

Could you link me to the one you got please? Thinking of picking one up as well, I figure 2TB will be just about enough but not sure of what one to get because I dunno if it'll fit/be compatible with the PS4 etc.

No, I believe the digital versions are not that much bigger, it's just the next gen consoles install the whole game on to the hard drive. It's another reason to look at going fully digital.

39gb just for a single game install!!! So if you buy digital copies some games are going to be about 100gb when including the actual game download all for just one game.
And what about those games where you have to have double the required space available to be able to download the game, things are going to get rather tricky with huge amounts of data.

I'm curious towards the effect of these large (30gig+) game sizes on the loading times and such. This seems to be at a state where you can't really keep all relevant data in ram without heavy level-separation or streaming of some sort, and the sheer size of data to be loaded when the asset change is in order might be.. well, slow.

I was actually surprised at there only being 500gB HDD's on the next Gen. On this Gen I am already having to delete stuff and re-install stuf on my 500gB HDD. (especially with all the PS+ stuff that comes our way). It would be a bit easier if it was just myself but because my kids play on it too I have to try and leave as many games on there as I can.

It is a bit disappointing that consoles are going the way of PC where you HAVE to install games before they can be played.

The likes of 39Gb seems to be almost the entire game on the HDD, bloody hell!

The likes of Naughty Dog and Santa Monica were able to cache titles on the PS3. So I presume they're not going down that route on the PS4...

Because I don't play one game at a time. With a PC I upgrade the hard drive or use a fast external one. I like to have most of my games available to me to play at once. Surely waiting an hour for an install before you play something is going backwards rather than improving things?

Hopefully the Xbox One will have fast read/write to external drives and we can use that, but moving to a more PC based architecture, you'd think they'd at least allow us to swap out the drive or have space for a second.

you can replace the internal hard drive in the PS4 tough so you could have 1TB or bigger if you wanted
